Follow us on LinkedIn – Growing prevalence of breathing disorders and aging population are driving demand for devices that monitor a patient’s breathing function, including those that monitor CO2. CO2 monitoring in clinical applications has evolved at rapid pace over the years, from its use in confirming endotracheal tube placement to monitoring etCO2 in patients. While demand growth for the more conventional Transcutaneous Carbon Dioxide (tcpCO2) Monitors remains steady, End-Tidal Carbon Dioxide (EtCO2) Monitors, particularly Capnography, have been gathering tremendous interest among researchers, equipment developers, hospitals and regulatory agencies alike.
Capnography is presently considered a segment with rich opportunities, growing in tandem with evolving patient care needs. Capnography devices have been witnessing significant advancements at the technology, design and application levels. Expanding applications for Capnography monitors is helping drive growth in the market. Although majority of existing capnography applications are in the operating rooms for detecting and identifying the end-tidal CO2 levels, new and emerging applications including critical care units, labor and delivery rooms, emergency rooms, post-anesthesia care units, and intensive care units have further propelled the use of capnography equipment in recent times.
Technological advances over the years have helped spur wider adoption of capnography devices. Research efforts are presently underway to explore the simultaneous use of rSO2 and etCO2 for optimum monitoring of a patient’s oxygenation status. In response to soaring demand from diverse application fields, capnography device designs are progressively becoming smaller, smarter, and simpler. Continuous innovation has led to the emergence of portable, reliable and durable monitors built to withstand the rigors of carbon dioxide monitoring in prehospital and retrieval medicine With improved understanding of true etCO2 waveform levels, on-field use of capnography in gathering momentum.
As stated by the new market research report on Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Monitors, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Several clinicians in the country are adopting capnography in respiratory care, emergency rooms, critical care, intermediate care, and sub-acute care units, driven by mounting research evidence that favors capnography in continuous respiratory monitoring over measurement of arterial oxygen saturation through pulse oximetry. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 16% over the analysis period.
Major players covered in the report include Covidien plc, Dräger Medical GmbH, Invivo Corporation, Masimo Corporation, Nihon Kohden Corporation, Nonin Medical Inc., OSI Systems Inc., Philips Healthcare, Physio-Control Inc., Radiometer Medical ApS, Smiths Medical and Welch Allyn Inc. among others.
